Chris Leach

Statement

Born in England in 1970. A graduate of Wimbledon School of Art, London.

The mainstay of my practice involves small scale and miniature work. I am interested in how scale can be used as a tool for both psychological and representational investigation. My work considers notions of material scale and proximity. It seeks to interrogate structures and currents within particular contexts or environments. The works utilise archival materials and procedures that have their roots in the history and conservation of art. They are intricate and finely detailed, each piece taking days and weeks to produce. They are about proximities and relativities of scale on both a psychological and material level. They are constructed to encourage an intimate response, enticing the viewer towards the surface of the composition as a point of mediation between the image and the elements that make up the work.
